"We just want to understand this". The official added that the State Department has not yet established a connection between the deaths.

Lawrence-Daley, her husband and another couple arrived at the all-inclusive Majestic resort on a Monday evening and spent the next day at the beach.

However, Tourism Minister Francisco Garcia released a statement assuring that the island nation is safe and that the deaths were "isolated incidents".

'Why didn't the deaths of the Maryland couple trigger an investigation, following so closely on Mrs Shaup-Werner's death?
